Challenge 13

Hi everybody...here is finally our new challenge and this time it will be all about ALTER EGO'S..
We where thinking about how Amelie would play tricks on the grocer to avenge the young men who worked for him. That is when we saw her in her mask and cape. So we thought about an alter ego---like Clark Kent is Superman. Or Bruce Waine is Batman. It doesn't have to be a super hero but another version of yourself...could be good or even naughty

We want to see yours Alter ego...
We have also again a great Awesome price for you and this time it will be HAMBLY PRINTS
so come on and play with us ...

This is what the lovely Amelie Girls did i hope we can give you the boost to make you alter ego...

Challenge 12

Our next challenge is all about the simple pleasures in live.Amelie enjoy's to dig into a sack of grain,crackin her creme brulee with a spoon or skipping stones at the St.Martin's canal. (Ricochet)

Maybe you enjoy the same simple pleasures as Amelie?Or maybe something completely different?Share it with us!!

We have an amazing price from Jenni Bowlin!!And believe me,it's going to be worth playing for.Be sure to link up your pages in the comment section before the 25th of April.

We have another fantastic Guest Designer this month Mylene Ouellette(Mimi73).
Please tell us something about yourself . Hi! My name is Mylène Ouellette (Mimi73) and I am 35 years old. I live in the suburbs of Montreal (Canada). I am scrapbooking for 2 years. Through this hobby, I have developed 3 other hobbys: photography, Mixed-Media and painting. I love scrapbooking because it allows me to be creative and above all ... to meet people. In recent weeks, I'm happy to provide workshops in a scrapbooking shop in my neighborhood. For me, It's very rewarding on a personal level that animate and share at these workshops.

Where can we see your work?
On my blog ;) http://mimi73.typepad.com
And you can also visit my EtsyShop: Mimi73.etsy.com

Can you describe your style?

How does Amelie inspire you?
Amélie Poulin is by far my favorite of all. I love it's naive side and deep colors . This movie makes me appreciate the simple pleasures of life and reminds me to live the present moment at 100%. I listen regularly to the original soundtrack when I do scrapbooking. I love the music of Yann Tiersen.

Anything you would like to add?
Thank you for your invitation Fauve :D Long life to your beautiful blog!!!

So good to have you with us this month!!Here is the lovely layout she made.Such wonderful details... And here is what our Amelie girls made this month.

Hello girls,I'm Severine Sorbier or "Les Elucubrations de Severine"
I live in South west of France in Lacanau <http://www.lacanau.com/webcams.htm> a city near the ocean, with my husband and my daughter Zoe … my two dogs and my cat !!! lot of people in this house :-) .I began scrapbooking since December 2004.And I love photography, especially “cheap photography”, I have a lomo with color flash and filters and an old folding camera date from 50’S … I very much love the results with these cameras.
I design stamps for “Katzelkraft” and collaborate to create a line of paper kraft with “la compagnie du kraft.”Sorry for this short bio but writing in English is not easy for me but I am working on it.

Can you describe your style?
A mix with Freestyle and Mixed Media ... It's my style :-)At first, I did traditional scrapping, and then I did more freestyle and mixed media. Now I do a mix of all techniques with MY photos or vintage photos and specially "les baigneuses".
How does Amelie inspire you?
I Love Montmartre, love style of this film, love colors, love vintage tone of the film and love the gnomes.
Anything you would like to add?

Can you describe your style?
Hmmm not easy to discribe your own work,i find it very hard but i'll try to explain... I think it's freestyle with a sense of humor story in it.Very colorful and i try to use not scrapbook related products in it.

How does Amelie inspire you?
Well,do i have to explain that?Come on!Watch the movie,it is awesome..I love everything about it,and i love Paris ....Oooh what a lovely city...and those colors...and her style...I like,like,like it!And then the gnome!I love gnomes and everything that has something to do with the fantasy world i live in...And that's why this movie inspires me so much.Love every bit of it.

Anything you would like to add?
Well just wanne thanks the girls here for picking me to be on this wonderfull design team and that i will and can inspire others.Love it ...
Please tell us something about yourself.
I am a lover of all things quirky.I love to sew but I am not very good at it.I have been scrapbooking for 8 years and seriously love it.I collect junk.I believe chocolate is the food of the gods.I am a passionate yet inconsistant mother.I married the right man.I really think there is nothing better than a strong cup of good coffee and an interesting book.I like to plan trips even if I know I won't be able to go.I dislike nail polish on my finger nails.I love to sleep but never get more than six hours.Turning 40 was awesome!

Where can we see your work?
I have a gallery on Scrap in Style TV.I am lucky to be on the design team of the challenge blog OLW and I also have a blog.

Can you describe your style?
Oh I think basically random.I love to just do what I feel. My favorite styles to admire are simple and vintage but I rarely create that way.

How does Amelie inspire you?
In so many ways. The colors, the wonkiness of the characters. I liked Amelie's shyness, her rock skipping.I really felt that this was a story that represents magic in little things...in simple kindness and imperfection. It is a movie that leaves me content and hopeful.

Anything you would like to add?
Yes. I am excited to be here!

So,our new challenge is all about Gnomes!We adore the traveling Gnome from the movie,and hope he insires you to create something and get's you into a Gnomie mood :) We would love to see you use the Gnom pictures we added,but we mainly just like to see some Gnomes on your project.Easy one right?Some come on,and play!!
Our price is a kit from the fabulous...bad girls kits!Deadline is the 25th of February!

We found a fantastic guest designer for this month!I seriously love her unique work,she is a huge inspiration.Pleased to introduce Mandi Graber .

I'm a 23 year old college student with a stud of a husband, which makes it totally easy to scrapbook, generally. :) I'm also a nanny and I have an online vintage clothing shop. I love taking photos and playing with all things crafty.
Where can we see your work?

Can you describe your style?
I would say I like a mix of warm and funky craftiness with a bit of minimalism mixed in.

How does Amelie inspire you?
To look at the world from different perspectives.

Anything you would like to add?
Nothing I can think of! :)
